Welcome to the February eNewsletter from Storage magazine. Among the articles that will hopefully inform and entertain you this month is a piece looking at recent research conducted by Seagate into how SMBs are planning for recovery and business continuity post Covid-19.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, a majority of SMBs believe business data will play an increasingly important role in their long-term recovery plans. With 36% of SMB decision makers expecting their staff to work from home more often after COVID-19, increased appreciation of how data can help businesses recover and thrive will be essential.

Nearly two thirds (65%) of SMB decision-makers say that their post-COVID-19 recovery strategy is being informed by the data they have stored about their business. As Jeff Fochtman of Seagate says in the article: "As businesses of all shapes and sizes become increasingly dependent on technology, realising the true value of the data those businesses have stored will become critical to unlocking future growth and innovation opportunities."

With no end in sight to remote working for large numbers of workers, data management looks set to remain very high on the agenda of businesses for some time to come.
